With Thetford expanding and more homes the way, the town's restaurants and cafes should have more hungry mouths to feed.

Here are seven great restaurants that the town has on offer, according to Tripadvisor.

1)The Mulberry

If there was one thing you needed to know about The Mulberry it is that it features in the Michelin Guide.

Foodies in Thetford agree as the Raymond Street restaurant is named the best. Described as a Tardis, it may appear small but "opens out like a flower in bloom on the inside; beautifully decorated and the staff and friendly," writes reviewer Michael.

2)Cheers Restaurant

Cheers is a steakhouse which offers a different restaurant experience but promises to make guest's experience special.

The Tripadvisor reviews are full of people praising the staff for the welcoming atmosphere and accommodating requests. Cheers, in White Hart Street, offers the chance to cook your own steak on hot stones while having unlimited wine.

3) New Saffron

Based in the heart of the town, in St Giles Lane, it has become a favourite with visitors. If you don't like dining out then it also offers takeaway and delivery so you can enjoy the food in your own home.

6) The Red Lion

This large pub in the centre of the town is run by Wetherspoons.

Although many know what to expect from this large national chain, the Red Lion, in Market Place, has been praised for its fast service, good selection of drinks and establishment size.

7) Lime Kiln Kitchen

Lime Kiln Kitchen is a popular cafe with shoppers as it is situated in at Thetford Garden Centre, in Kilverstone, just north of the town.

Having recently been renovated, Tripadvisor writers have said it made a great stop for a quick bite to eat or to round off their visit to the garden centre.
